Physican Associates

Recently the practice has welcomed Physician Associate students as Prof Nick Cooper is Course Director for one of the few programmes in the UK, which started at Plymouth University’s Peninsula Medical School in January 2015.

This emerging profession will be a useful addition to the medical workforce in hospitals and primary care. Students spend time, in the practice, in both years of their two year postgraduate course as well as placements at Derriford and Torbay Hospitals.
